Stopped in at Wish Willy’s based on a recent recommendation from a diving buddy, and we were not disappointed. When we first showed up, it appeared they were closed as no one was there, but we were graciously met by Maurice, who was hospitable and promptly invited us to sit, enjoy the reggae tunes playing, and have a drink while we waited for our appetizer of fish ceviche (which was the best I had on Caye Caulker). Great relaxing and casual outdoor atmosphere (bring/wear bug repellent), and the food was spectacular. We ordered the whole fish (red snapper) and blackened fish filets with sides of rice, veggies, and salad, and it was a wonderful meal. Plan on spending time here, as the food is prepared fresh to order (so it is by no means quick fast food). By the time we finished our meal, 90% of the seats were taken, and more people were coming in. Would definitely return the next time we are on Caye Caulker.

Very cool setting off a side street heard great things was somewhat disappointed maybe they were just having an off night chef seemed, angry server was confused at best.Conch cerviche was terrible very little Conch and a whole lot of white vinegar. Two small grilled snapper were cooked perfectly for the other entree. Met a bunch of nice people there.

We visited Wish Willy on our last night in Caye Caulker and I am SO glad we didn't miss out on this place. The experience was great and the food was even better! We ordered the fresh lobster, a whole grilled fish and the curry conch. It was spectacular and so memorable! I wish we could have come for breakfast too!

We enjoyed our meal so much we went back again! Willy is fantastic! He is super laid back and cooks an outstanding meal. He cooks what is available that day so everything is fresh. Such a relaxing atmosphere too - all outdoor seating in the courtyard. Highly recommend - our favorite spot on the island

The blackened snapper and fish curry with fresh vegetables were fantastic. One of our favorite local spots for lunch! We brought our own local beer and Wish Willy had ice. Our food was ready in ten minutes.
